Passport Services

The Moline Public Library is an authorized United States Passport Acceptance Facility and accepts passport applications on behalf of the U. S. Department of State.

We offer processing for:

  • First-time applicants
  • Applicants that were under 16 years of age when their most recent passport was issued
  • Applicants whose most recent passport has been expired for more than 5 years
  • Applicants who have lost their most recent passport and cannot submit a renewal form

Those eligible to use the DS-82 Passport Renewal form do not need to go to an acceptance facility to process their application.

We are not a Regional Passport Agency and do not provide physical passports on site.

Passport Applicants

All applicants and relevant parties must be present during the application process.

Both parents and children must be present for all minor applications (under age 16). If one parent cannot be present, you must submit a Parent Consent Form (DS-3053), completed with a notarized signature from the non-applying parent/guardian, and a copy of front and back of the non-applying parent's ID (it should be the same ID that they showed the notary).

Passport Photos

Passport applicants will need a passport photo for their appointment. Passport photos must be a 2” x 2”, color, full-face view photo, taken within the last 6 months. No glasses, hats, headgear, uniforms or camouflage clothing are permitted in the photos.

Passport photos can be brought with to the appointment or be taken at the library at the time of the appointment for applicants 3 years of age and older. Passport photos are printed in pairs. There will be a charge of $15 per pair of passport photos per individual applicant. If an individual needs additional copies of their passport photos, additional sheets (of 2 passport photos) can be printed for an additional $2 apiece.

Passport acceptance service is offered by appointment only.

Appointment hours:

 9 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The last appointment of the day will start 1 hour prior to the end of service.

Applicants arriving 15 minutes or more late for an appointment may be asked to reschedule. Applicants arriving early may still need to wait until their appointed time to begin.

Passport Acceptance Agents reserve the right to stop accepting applications prior to scheduled end time if they judge that processing of the application(s) would continue past closing.

Please allow adequate time for each application when scheduling an appointment.
